19th International Conference on Content-based Multimedia Indexing Call for Papers

19th International Conference on Content-based Multimedia Indexing


Sept. 14-16, 2022

Graz, Austria


Call for Papers 

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research
papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and
applications. We wish to highlight significant contributions
addressing the main problem of search and retrieval but also the
related and equally important issues of multimedia content management,
user interaction, large-scale search, learning in retrieval, social
media indexing and retrieval. In addition, special sessions on
specific technical aspects or application domains are planned (the
Call for Special Session Proposals
(https://cbmi2022.org/call-for-special-sessions/) is still open until
Jan. 29).

Authors can submit full length (6 pages - to be presented as oral
presentation) or short papers (4 pages - to be presented as
posters). The submissions are peer reviewed in a single blind
process. The language of the conference is English.

The CBMI proceedings are traditionally indexed and distributed by IEEE
Xplore and ACM DL. In addition, authors of certain best papers of the
conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their
contributions to a special issue of a leading journal in the field
(e.g. MTAP - Springer).

Call for Special Sessions

CBMI is also calling for special sessions on timely research topics
related to multimedia indexing. See the call for special sessions at
https://cbmi2022.org/call-for-special-sessions/ for details.


Topics of interest to the CBMI community include, but are not limited
to, the following:

Content analysis and indexing

- Deep learning for multimedia analysis and indexing

- Audio (speech, music, etc) and visual content analysis and understanding

- Identification and tracking of semantic regions and events

- Social media analysis

- Metadata generation, coding and transformation

- Activity recognition and event-based multimedia indexing

- New technologies for indexing, for example, bio-inspired, spiking neural networks

Search, retrieval and recommendation

- Multimedia information retrieval (image, audio, video, text)

- Mobile media retrieval

- Event-based media retrieval

- Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for multimedia retrieval

- Multimedia data mining and analytics

- Multimedia retrieval for multimodal analytics and visualisation

- Multimedia recommendation

- Multimedia verification (e.g., multimodal fact checking, deep fake analysis)

- Large scale multimedia database management

- Summarization, browsing and organization of multimedia content

- Evaluation and benchmarking of multimedia retrieval systems

Multimedia user experience

- User interaction and relevance feedback

- Multimedia interfaces, presentation and visualization tools

- Personalization and content adaptation

- Virtual, augmented and mixed reality interfaces for multimedia search

Applications of multimedia indexing and retrieval, e.g., cultural
heritage, medicine, lifelogs, satellite imagery, augmented and mixed
reality, video surveillance, forensics, security, atmosphere and
